Question for written answer E-000956-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Dimitrios Papadimoulis (GUE/NGL)

 Subject:  Remarks by the European Court of Auditors regarding the agreement on the MFF 2021-2027 and the rules on corruption
 Answer in writing 

In its recent remarks(1) on the 51 legislative proposals submitted by the Commission in relation to the Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027, the European Court of Auditors noted significant delays in the adoption of its proposals, due by the end of 2019.

In view of the above, will the Commission say:

Given that the ECA calls on the European Parliament and the Council forthwith to reach an agreement on this EU medium-term budget, what does it intend to do to overcome the ‘obstacles’ to this process created by some Member States?

How does it assess the ECA's proposal for it to be appointed the external auditor in principle for all bodies set up in the EU and an auditor for its legislative proposals in the context of efforts to strengthen democratic accountability, given that — according to the European auditors — the Commission itself has failed to carry out a thorough impact assessment of its proposals for the MFF 2021-2027?

How will it comply with the ECA's recommendations on combating corruption and strengthening the protection of the EU's financial interests, particularly with regard to the Commission's proposal for cooperation between the European Public Prosecutor’s Office and OLAF?
